Salzburg is the birthplace of W. A. Mozart. The narrow streets and wide squares of the old town are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The world-famous Salzburg Festival, the magnificent panorama and numerous temptations at Christmas time make Salzburg an incomparable synthesis of the arts. Salzburg is unique. The harmonious interplay of landscape and architecture, art and culture as well as tradition and modernity in the smallest of spaces is what makes it so appealing.
